The modern society has designated blue color for boys and pink for girls.Period.
Little did I realize before having children that these colors go beyond the dresses; They manifest themselves as body images, personalities, mannerisms and the entire outlook for the life.
I grapple with this color issue in everyday life while raising my boys. For one, I want them to be part of the society where they can go freely and select ‘pink’ if this is the hue they desire without the fear of, ‘What others will think?’, But we are not there yet.
I had overheard several examples when children teased the kid for selection of another gender color; this is mostly true for boys because-
'Girls can wear blue, but boys cannot wear pink.'
The above is the statement quoted by a salesman when I and my hubby were crib shopping for our first child.
